This practical guide provides you with rock-solid, readable guidance. Based on the original work by Judge William C. Hillman, a recognized U.C.C. authority, this new edition of Hillman on Documenting Secured Transactions presents Article 9 best practices from a twenty-first-century perspective, giving you a working grasp of the legal, technical, and business aspects of Article 9 transactions.

Nearly twenty years into Revised Article 9, with the 1999 revisions and 2010 amendments now adopted by all fifty states, this new third edition, now in a softcover format,  focuses on Revised Article 9 as the current law, adding glosses and other background on prior law under Prior Article 9 and pre-Revision case law where helpful. This new edition also includes:

  • A new chapter on Alternatives to Perfection by Filing, examining methods like control, which plays a significant role in transactions today
  • Significantly revised and updated coverage of the scope of Article 9 and the governmental transfer exclusion
  • Two new appendices to help keep track of old and new section numbering, as well as to track the sources of Revised Article 9 sections
